Thanks for the heads up. I've just issued a rebuild of gkrellm, which 
should fix the font issues. I've also corrected the skype issues, and 
it'll rebuild this weekend as well. (The port was pretty broken as well) 
If you run across any other PBIs that still don't work on 7.1, please 
let me know and we'll get them replaced.
